Kaiju (怪獣 kai-jū) is a Japanese word that means "strange beast," but often translated in English as "monster".
We'd love to connect with anybody who enjoyed the film, and encourage you to send our little kaiju out into the big bad world.

Official Clip for Hudson and Troop - Stop Motion Kaleidoscopic Fun.
The official music video for ‘Against The Grain’ from emerging Melbourne indie-folk artist Hudson sees him collaborate with film maker/animator/VJ Dropbear (aka Jonathan Chong), producing a vibrant and colourful clip based around a mainstay from our humble artistic efforts throughout childhood – coloured pencils.
Animated on location at a beach, in snow, and underwater, this stop-motion short details a transoceanic conversation between two characters via objects in a bottle.
